ISCSI reboot problem with Veritas Cluster Server

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I've a problem with iSCSI and VCS. Basically the problem is for RHEL. As you know when you reboot a system that uses iSCSI usually the name of the devices is always changing, (/dev/sdf to /dev/sdm) so I found a way to solve this issue with UUID (not cluster UUID). That's the ID you get with blkid command.

I've configured in VCS in BlockDevice section (/dev/sdX) but I've been looking for documentation about If I can configure UUID instead /dev/sdX but there aren't any references about it, so please tell me how should I configure UUID in VCS.

Thanks for your help!

I've tried setting BlockDevice like this:


But it says that device does not exist, so i don't know how to fix this issue.

I've tried this persistent storage too but it's not working either

Any help would be appreciated.

Try iSCSI Persistent Binding.

I was thinking there was some kind of workaround at cluster level but I see I must solve it at OS level, anyway thanks for your help.

Best Regards.
